Hostal Aribau
Ranked #288 of 736 Speciality Lodging in Barcelona
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We stayed for four nights at the Hostal Aribau.
The staff is very kind and obliging. They cleaned the room every day.
There is no luxury of course but it is kind of cosy, so the price is appropriate.
You are after a ten minute walk at the Catalunya. But there are also shops at the University which you reach in less than 5 minutes.
In all we had a really nice time and would go for another citytrip back there.

Reviewed 31 August 2010

We stayed here on a Friday & Saturday in August, so finding a decently priced place was not easy. This place was okay. The bed was old, the shower was tiny and leaked, and the bathroom didn't always smell the best. No Wifi, and the closest option was Starbucks 3 blocks away. The AC was strong, the room was quiet, the room was clean, and the staff was mostly friendly. The elderly man who checked us in, and who always seemed to be there, did not speak English, but was accomodating. Had to be buzzed in at night, but that wasn't a problem even when we came in at 4am. The neighborhood is good and seemed safe (it was the end of the gay neighborhood, if that matters to you), good bars and cafes, and not too far from the Metro, Airport Express bus, and the big sights. If you can find something else, look around. But if this is your best option, you could do worse.

We had the hard time to find an appropriate place for reasonable price in Barcelona and we found this place quite ok for our 3 night stay.Rooms were small and pretty basic with small funny bathrooms. Small window only in the bathroom. The staff was friendly and helpful ( but didn't speak English, however not a problem if you speak a bit of Spanish).I think rooms on the 2nd floor are better than the ones on the last floor. Location is ok, some 7 min walking till Placa Catalunia and some 3 min till underground.

Reviewed 25 October 2006

Don't believe the Web site description--(lovely room, king-size bed). While the location was good--close to the metro and within walking distance of the Las Ramblas, the primary room was very small, the bed squeaked just turning over (a double, older than Methuselah), the shower stall so small, you couldn't turn around, and the lift creaked, groaned and thumped all night long.

The staff was indifferent to our questions and requests.
